The Title is lost – time for Arsenal to set a new target.

Time to reset our horizons?

Let’s face it, barring a miracle, if I was one of the luck punters with £100 on Leicester to win the title at 5000/1, I wouldn’t be cashing out early as all the bookies are praying they do.
5 points clear of the spuds (11 to Arsenal) 7 games to go and a decent run in. It’s in the the bag and fair play to them.


Arsenal need to take a breath, take stock and reevaluate.

Arsenal have not met their potential this season, we all know that. But, with exception of Sp*rs, nor have the rest of the ‘Big 6’.

Chelsea are languishing in 10th, 25 points off the pace and are unlikely to even make the Europa League and yet again have sacked their manager.

Liverpool are 9th, 22 points a drift and are also struggling to make weekly trips to the continent come August.

The Manchester contingent are 4th and 6th respectively. 15 and 16 points off the summit and slugging it out on who gets to play on Tuesday/Wednesday or Thursday nights next season.


We have all underachieved, Arsenal have just underachieved less than the rest.

And then there is Sp*rs and this is where we must adjust our thinking.
They are 6 points further up the road, but have played a game more and play United and Liverpool after the Interlull.

Our target must now be;

Pray the northerners do us a favour and turn over Sp*rs

Take 24 points from our last 8 games.

Finish second, as the least worst of the rest

Watch UEFA go into meltdown, having to get their heads around Leicester being in the Champions League

Congratulate Leicester on the most unlikely title win in footballing history.

And get ready to start all over again in August 😉

    Arsenal are gonna win the league…Mark my words

    I dont believe it would take a miracle for us to steal this league.

    Yes, we are big underdogs now with 8 games to go and two teams above us.

    But look at Leicester’s and Spurs’ fixtures. There are a few defeats scattered in both their run ins which means we absolutely have to be ready to take advantage if and when this occurs.

    The boys have to play the remaining games as if each is a cup final.

    With no other competitions to play for, a near enough fully fit squad returning after the break, a very good run in with 5 out of 8 games being at home and the looks of a very balanced side going from the last two performances I expect us now to go on a run. Would any of you really be surprised if we win all of our remaining 8 games?

    So lets get behind the lads and leave the wenger/stan out protests till after the season. 79 points will win the league this season and that target is still (just about) within reach for us.

    I agree that the protests should be suspended till the end of the season. We need to encourage the team. That is also what Wenger wants. At the end, if we finish top 4 again, then all that has changed is that we performed even worse this year than we did in the last two years.

    That was bound to promote protests but if Wenger gets a fair chance to bring the championship home, then let us give him it. If he fails then he cannot say that pressure from the fans caused the final collapse.

    I totally agree, it is possible but I just can’t see a team that’s only lost 3 games in 31 losing 3 in 7.
    But if we win our remaining 8 games we put ourselves in with a chance.
    We need to get behind the team and pray

    anything can happen because both Leicester and spur have some hard matches to play so our boys should concentrate on their remaining 8 match’s and win it. let support them still the end of season.
